The Institute for Medical Quality (IMQ) is offering a free online course on child abuse prevention, recognition and reporting. This 75-minute course, created by the Child Abuse Prevention Center in Sacramento, is designed for physicians, nurses and other health care professionals who are mandated by law to report suspected child abuse and neglect, but who may not be familiar with the signs and symptoms. This course will also explain what, when and to whom to properly report findings.
Upon completion of the course, attendees will receive 1.25 continuing education credits commensurate with their degree. The course also is available for providers to take in a group setting and get course credit, provided the participants sign in, include their license number, and complete the post test and evaluation form.
The course is offered free of charge through a grant from the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services. The governor's office hopes that ALL licensed California physicians, nurses and other health care professionals will take this course.
Under the terms of the grant, pre-registration is required that includes name, degree, license number and email address. After entering this information, you will receive an email with the link to the full registration form and instructions on how to access to the course.
